have photo of person, used quick select then added mask.  background shows transparent (checkerboard).  when I export as png, background shows black. when I export legacy for web png24,  preview shows fine, exported png background shows original background as though no mask.  

how do I make a png with transparent background?  I can use any number of free throwaway graphics softwares to make png with transparent backgound from a photo, is this possible in photoshop or any adobe products?  really guys, this should not be difficult.

You need to enable the transparency checkbox in SaveForWeb so it can include the transparency data.
